Christopher Lee Rios (November 9, 1971 – February 7, 2000), better known as Big Punisher or Big Pun, was a New York rapper of Puerto Rican descent who emerged from the underground rap scene in The Bronx in the late 1990s.
He first appeared on albums from The Beatnuts on the track "Off The Books" and Fat Joe on Fat Joe's second album J.O.E. (Jealous Ones Envy), on the track "Watch Out", prior to signing to Loud Records as a solo artist.
Big Pun's career was cut short in 2000 by a fatal heart attack due to his obesity. He was survived by a wife, Liza Rios, and three children.
